Do you need to have your garage door repaired but do not know who you can trust? Door Power in Norwood, Minnesota is here to help you. We have been servicing the Minneapolis metro area since 1967. Here are a few tips to help you avoid getting scammed while having your garage door fixed.
When Choosing a Repair Company
When choosing a company to repair your garage door, make sure you get referrals from friends and family to help you make that choice. Check with the BBB, Yelp, and social media reviews for the company. Make sure they have a physical address, and it is a legitimate address. Ask for bids or work estimates before you commit to a company doing the job. Also, ask if there is a charge for them to come out and give you an estimate.
When Garage Door Technician Arrives
Here are a few things for you to look for when a garage door technician arrives:
● Are they driving a company vehicle?
● Do they have a company badge or uniform?
● What is the reason for replacing a part or making a repair?
● They should have an expert knowledge on all industry-related issues.
● They should act in a professional manner in all areas of their work.
Doing More Work Than Necessary
If a repair technician tells you they will need to replace every part or replace the entire garage door, you should get a second opinion from a reputable company. You may have a simple repair job, but a dishonest repair company may convince you that you need additional service. Before you commit to a larger project, contact Door Power. Our technicians will give you an honest and accurate assessment of the service your garage door needs.
Before you agree to a garage door repair service guarantee, read the fine print and find out what the warranty covers. Garage springs, for example, have a life cycle of 15,000 to 50,000 depending on how much you use your garage door. Will the guarantee cover the springs for their expected lifespan and use? Make sure the garage door company guarantees their labor as well as the parts they install. If they do not guarantee their labor or parts, they may be using cheaper products that will break more often.
When You Hire the Garage Door Repair Company
Make sure you get a written a detailed list of all parts and labor necessary to complete a garage door repair job. Make sure you also get a receipt of all replaced parts and work completed. Never pay for a job until it is complete and you are 100% satisfied with the results.
